Southern California has produced some of the biggest
names in the sport of BMX over the past 40 years. At a time when turning
pro in bmx at age 16 was still a somewhat new thing, a fresh face to
the contest scene quickly became one of the top riders in the sport!
Mike Parenti got his first major sponsorship with GT Bicycles and
immediately started competing in some of the biggest contests on the
planet. Mike went on several summer tours, did NBA half time shows, and
moved up the ranks in both dirt and park placings at contests such as
the X Games, Gravity Games, Van's Triple Crown, and Dew Tour.
sat down and talked to Mike about the first time he met Dave Voelker,
receiving a phone call from Woody Itson asking him to ride for GT
Bicycles, being the focus of an HBO documentary, going on tour with
older riders, some of his favorite stories from the road, blasting the
mega ramp, and his new job working for Haro bikes.
So get comfortable, crank up your speakers, and get to know one of Californias most talented BMX riders.... Mike Parenti
